The Answer to What is 1630. Joey’s Invitation He may soon regret!

What is 1630?

1,630 is The number of posts I have done since I was invited to join GMG as an Author. Who knew I had so much on my mind. For the most part it’s been fun. Sometimes I get a little carried away. I still have my comments censored by Joey. He tries to save me from myself. During my first couple of years I would love to bust Joey’s Balls when he went on vacation. Back then he didn’t have the time to check the late night posts. So I took advantage of it. Posting joey’s head on a picture of a guy taking a dump was my favorite.

It’s a lot of brain work to come up with a daily post and post title to catch the readers attention. Sometimes I’ll take a little break to recharge my brain.

I never thought this blog would last this long. It’s going to be interesting to see what’s next for GMG.

Goodluck Joey and all the GMG Authors!

Below is my first ever post being a GMG Author

 

Joey’s Invitation He Soon My Regret!

Joey’s Invitation; “Paul, I’m inviting you to officially join the team. All you would need to do is sign up for a free wordpress account and I have it set up so you would be an author like Mike Lindberg , Laurie Lufkin etc.”

Thanks for the Invite to be a GMG Author Joey. It’s an Honor, but I don’t know.

Here are some of my thoughts and questions

Is this an everyday thing?   that may be tough.
What happens if you miss a scheduled post?
I think I have enough Anxiety in my Life.
I don’t have a lot to say!
I could say something  you and I may regret!
What if I ruin GMG’s reputation? It could happen.
What’s the chances of my Wife putting out more because of  this?
What’s the chance of me getting punched from this?
It could be fun!
It could be a disaster!
I could use it to promote the visual arts in gloucester!! and maybe get a kickback. (just kidding)
I could use it to help Promote  Visual Artist’s in this tough economy.
I could use it to promote my stuff!

I could make a complete fool of myself!  I know! That sounds silly, Does’nt it?

See Joey, that’s what goes through my mind.
DO YOU REALLY WANT SOMEONE LIKE ME THAT COULD POSSIBLY RUIN GMG’S REPUTATION???????????????
AND I THINK THIS WOULD BE MY FIRST POST.
LOVE , PAUL

CRAIG’S FAV JOINTS – SURFSIDE PIZZA & SUBS

This is the inaugural episode of my new series that showcases anything I’m really diggin’ at the moment. And right now, I’m feeling me some SURFRIDER PIZZA. You may know that they have great subs on fresh baked bread, but do you know how awesome the pie is there? This place churns out some amazing specialty pies, one of my favorites being the Pollo Pesto, trust. But in this episode, I go in deep for the classic: pepperoni and cheese. For me, it’s all about hand tossed, freshly made thin crust. I’m not about some sweet sauce either, that’s just wrong. Some call in New York style, I call it proper. Whether it’s a white garlic pizza, pesto, red sauce, you name it, SURFRIDER has something for ya!

The Loss of the F/V Patriot 01/03/2009

On January 3, 2009 the F\V Patriot was lost at Sea with both crewmen.  Here is the story from the Gloucester Daily Times and a few photos I took of the Patriot in 2008.  Also, Joey has some great pictures and video of inside the Patriots wheelhouse and engine room. 

From the Gloucester Daily Times;

Mourning the Patriot

Trawler tragedy claims lives of two fishermen

“By Richard Gaines The Gloucester Daily Times Sun Jan 04, 2009, 10:52 PM EST

As president of the Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Association, Angela Sanfilippo has dealt many times with tragedy at sea. It never gets easier.

“This is a shocker,” she said Saturday, referring to the loss of the Patriot and the lives of two local fishermen. “This was the perfect boat. Gloucester has one more time been stricken.” 

The two members of a Gloucester fishing family — the husband and father of Josephine Russo — were lost at sea early Saturday when the family-owned Patriot, a modern, 54-foot, steel-hulled trawler fishing alone on Middle Bank, about 15 miles from port, sank after an apparent catastrophic failure.
